Welcome to the Arena, where high-ranking warriors are transformed into spineless mush. Abandoning every ounce of common sense and any trace of doubt, you lunge onto a stage of harrowing landscapes and veiled abysses. Your new environment rejects you with lava pits and atmospheric hazards as legions of foes surround you, testing the gut reaction that brought you here in the first place. Your new mantra: Fight or be finished.

Version 0.4 of Uber Arena has landed on the internet, and it involves a very well-known voice actor who worked on both Quake 3 and Quake Live!

- Christian Antkow, the original Quake 3 announcer, now voices the Conservation and Scavenger power-ups, the Tyrant medal, and the main menu intro. HUGE thanks for your work; it is a real honor to have you involved in my mod!

- Added 4 new maps:

- Torn to Shreds (uadm9)
Original Author: Dan "CardO" Shannon
NOTE: Based on the QueToo version; originally a Quake 2 map

- Factory Frenzy (uadm10)
Original Author: Nick "Nickster" Hambrecht

- Out on a Capture (uactf1)
Original Author: Tigger-On
NOTE: CTF version of Out on a Rampage (uadm3)

- Spirit Collision (uactf2)
Original Author: Tim "spirit" Schäfer

- Newly redesigned menu, with a cool Matrix background effect courtesy of Stefan "sst13" Scholz (from his "Campgrounds Matrix Edition" map)

- Holdable items, as well as the gauntlet / machinegun, can now be dropped by players upon death or specating. If the Storage Capsule is dropped, it will revert to Standby Mode, and any item carried in it at the time (if any) will be dropped along with it, including items that normally couldn't be dropped like armor and health.

- Storage Capsule now displays the icon of the item it is currently carrying above its own icon.

- Players carrying uberweapons can now be identified by glowing orbs encircling their player model. The color of the orb corresponds to whatever weapon they are currently carrying; for example, players with the Homing Rocket Launcher will have a red orb.

- New piercing machinegun sound.

- New homing rocket sound (tracking beep noises).

- New multi-grenade skin (hazard stripes; brighter green light flash).

- New arc lightning color (gold).

- New ion plasma bolt color (magenta); inspired by the Q3Test plasma gun.

- New toxic railgun sound (hiss).

- New BFG30K bolt color (blue).

- New Conservation firing sounds.

- New Scavenger aura.

- New map loading screen.

- Added the g_bouncy cmd. Treats all walkable surfaces as trampolines. Intended for development purposes, but can be fun to play around with.

- Ubered ammo no longer used up while Conservation is active.

- Moved Storage Capsule state messages to the client; now prints as large text in the same manner as the normal holdable activation message.

- Fixed a bug where players that approached a flag with a capture-mode Storage Capsule would look like they picked up the flag, even though they really didn't (and cannot)

- Fixed weapon limit stats being hidden by flag indicators in CTF.

- Fixed a bug that would cause items knocked onto movers to continue to be affected by those movers after respawning.

- Fixed a bug that prevented players who weren't carrying the enemy flag from returning their own flag by touching it.

- Fixed a bug in which a knocked-away flag that returned to its location didn't generate a return announcement, and would continue to identify as missing.

- Fixed a bug in which a player who uses an item they were currently carrying in the Storage Capsule would cause the original item (the one they picked up and captured in the first place) to disappear as if it had been picked up.

- Fixed a homing rocket related movement bug that persisted due to only appearing in .vm compiled game code.

- Fixed a bug in which the game would crash if a player attempted to use an item in the Storage Capsule that was originally a dropped item.

Judging by the resources, characters and weapons in this game it could've been a great follow up of Quake 2 if they didn't aim for a multiplayer deathmatch styled game.

I've been retro gaming lately and finally got into q3 and wow I'm so rusty on this game I can't even beat the bots on hardcore - nightmare mode LoL! Along UT and HL this old games are just timeless.

Many more old games are timeless than just the few you mentioned.

However personally I think HL is being overrated a tad, especially if you say it is one of only three games which are timeless.

My most favorite Quake 3 Arena analogy that I found somewhere in the internet; "It's just like a finely-tuned, high-performance, race car. It's fast, it feels great, and people who likes looking under the hood would find the inside is just as interesting. Yes, it basically does only one thing, unlike other types of land vehicles(like, the SUV). But you can't deny, it does that one thing, so, very, great."

Never mind, I just found out it's actually called Pain Keep Arena, and that Painkiller was actually the name of a bot in the first map of its solo ladder mode.

I agree that this is one of the best FPS I've ever played.. though Duke3d was super fun in MP... What I'm finding is that games that are supposed to be simple (Just kill the other guys) has become complicated, and in that process a lot of the fun of the game has been lost...
I've been playing some UT2k4 and I still go back to Q3 when I really want to have fun without endless frustration

There are a lot of mods for this game I don't understand why no one has thought of a Halo or Assassins Creed mod for this game

Quake 3, is without a doubt, one of my favourite games. This game is amazing. I can play it offline for hours and hours without getting bored. The bots are great, and quite challenging on higher difficulty settings. The weapons are well designed but the machinegun was really crappy. Making stuff for this game is really easy and makes the game even better. There isn't really a storyline to the singleplayer campaign. But this isn't much of an annoyence. I found the maps to be very fun, especially…
